    Re: Playerunknown's Battlegrounds

    Seen a few of my friends have this and was looking into it. I'm pretty sure 10 years ago this would just have been a multiplayer mode on a normal game though? Sounds like it's good to play, but at most £20. The recent Steam reviews have slated it for going back on the promise of not charging for in game items.

    Remember when the MOD community was about sharing some fun rather than milking people? I'm all for the Devs making the step up into the professional development scene on the back of a good mod. Maybe I was just spoilt by everything that was done on the back of Half-Life...?

    As far as I am aware the paid for items are clothes that have no benefit in game, so pointless.

    As for the mod community I think they figured out many people were taking p out of them, despite the amount of work they put in to game many players kicked up a stink about relatively modest charges. Compared to the price of HL2 mods that went retail this is pretty cheap. DOD-S was $20 on release back in 2005.

    Pointless in the main but i've made £40 this week selling items and crates on the steam marketplace OK so "made" is maybe slightly generous as it's going to get spent on other steam games, but essentially PUBG is currently funding my steam games and has more than paid for itself.

    I'm also playing it way too much at the moment - 40 hours over the last 7 days apparently...which is crazy for me. It's pretty much all I am playing at the moment.

    Since the patch dropped last week i've actually moved back away from FPP and started to really enjoy the squad mode, me + 3 randoms. Sure you get plenty of idiots on there but when you get a squad who knows what to do, uses voice to call out enemies/targets etc and generally works with you it's a great experience.

    You are right Jimbouk this is a game that 20 years ago would have been a mod - it reminds me so much of Counter Strike in that regard (both in the fact I sunk all my free time into it, and how it makes me feel)..but even CS went commercial eventually (even if CS v0.6 was still the best version they made, but I digress).

    It's well worth they money though - i'd happily pay £30 for it, but it's cheaper than that

    That's brilliant news, thanks so much for keeping an eye out for me! I'll buy it later on & give it a go!
